These individual titles are now available in a lovely boxed set to be sold in for Christmas. These books describe how, when the first European settlers arrived, they did not understand Australian animals. The stories revolve around misunderstandings about the animals - that the koala (bear) would drink milk, that the platypus breathed underwater like a fish; the white settlers didn't know a wombat could dig and were astounded when they saw a kangaroo hop with babies in a pouch.The white settlers had never seen anything like Australian creatures and were not quite sure what they were - they made many mistakes in their attempts to draw them. At the end of this book are shown pictures drawn by early settlers, accompanied by a simple text for children. See a kangaroo with four babies, a koala with pig-like ears and a wombat standing up on hind legs!

The individual books are beautifully produced with charming illustrations and with cloth cases and jackets; a heritage presentation in a sturdy and attractively designed slipcase that is great value for money.
